With a name and concept inspired by the Olympics, it’s no wonder that Opening Ceremony is a brand with a multi-national approach to design. Established in 2002 by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, the label shot to fame by showcasing emerging designers from around the world in its NYC-based boutique. Today, its ethos prevails, proving that diversity and experimentation are the key ingredients to undisputed success. Familiar silhouettes are often offset with abstract prints while high-tech fabrics, unorthodox textures and bold colour palettes enhance casualwear classics. With a penchant for forward-looking design and a number of high-profile collaborations already under its belt, Opening Ceremony always wins gold. Discover our selection of podium-placing pieces below.
